Rodeo Caves – a set of caves excavated in the mountain, Rojales

The Rodeo Caves known as the Cuevas del Rodeo, one of the attractions of Rojales, is a set of caves excavated in the mountain in the eighteenth century, made by Murcian miners who came to Rojales to work in agricultural work.

Their experience as stonecutters led them to build their dwelling in the rock, giving rise to a true underground urban plot that, later, faced with the precariousness of the cane and mud houses, constituted the home of generations of reds until the beginning of the 20th century.

In this way, this curious architectural core delimits Rojales in the south and constitutes an interesting attraction that tourists should not forget to visit as they pass through the municipality. The Ecomuseum of the underground Habitat and the artisan souk are located in this environment.
